A SECRET DESIRE -DECADES: A JOURNEY OF AFRICAN AMERICAN ROMANCE
BY KAIA DANIELLE
I enjoyed this story that featured Halle Duncan and Dr. Nick Green. The younger man-older woman trope worked well with the storyline. Kudos to Kaia Danielle who adeptly incorporates this trope into the story. However, the heart and soul of the story was the historical element that the author weaves into the storyline. The fact that there were viable beach resorts located on the East Coast that Black people owned and operated during the 1910’s was a revelation. Widowed Halle leaves the social elite of Washington D.C. to return to her roots, her family’s resort to help her sister open it for the summer season. Nick is in love with Halle, and he accompanied her to the resort in order to finally get a chance to be with her. This was a captivating story, but I felt the ending was rushed. It left me with a couple of unanswered questions that could have been answered with the addition of one more chapter. Nevertheless, I recommend this charming story. This series Decades: A Journey of African American Romance is proving to be entertaining and educational.
